The police further said that the accused Lingam and Sunnapu are transporting ganja which was received from DTDC courier service at the Chandanagar branch.

“On verification, it came to light that an accused person by the name Chandra Shekhar from Odisha with the support of a local DTDC employee transported ganja in six boxes,” said G Sandeep, DCP Madhapur.

“Lingam and Raju were previously involved in several NDPS cases and went to jail. After being released from jail they didn’t change their behavior and again indulged in peddling dry ganja for their monetary benefits. They began procuring dry ganja from the accused Chandrashekar from Odisha and transporting the ganja to Sunil from Pune,” he said.
